EcoSikh Holds Plantation Drive in Village Kalwa, Haryana

April 27, Kalwa Haryana; EcoSikh in its first ever plantation drive in a village named Kalwa, helped to raise 125 tree saplings including Lemon, Cheeku and Guava, to celebrate Earth Day last week. EcoSikh Haryana coordinator, Gurpreet Singh engaged the Polio Vaccination team to collect data from every door about the type and number of trees the family would want to adopt, out of the given choices. Along with that School Management Committee of the village, Anganwari, Asha, Village Panchayat and Block Elementry Education Officer were involved. And to our surprise over 50 families showed up with a lot of interest. The guardian families were asked to put their own effort to dig out pits for the trees, whereas the best spots for raising trees were recommended by EcoSikh.

Gurpreet Singh congratulated the villagers for this new achievement and said,” It’s a time to celebrate, as 125 new trees are born in our village and it’s the time to realize our responsibility to take best care of our trees as we care our new born babies.”
The Block Elementary Education Officer, Ram Dia Gagat advised the villagers in his
words,” It is your duty in this parenthood to keep the trees disease free. The trees will one day give you fruits and much more when they will grow up.”
